Image of the Year Photo Contest
The IMAGE OF THE YEAR contest is a brand new initiative in partnership with IMAGEBRIEF where an annual ‘Brief’ will be supplied and the image that best depicts the brief will be deemed the overall winner.
LIVE PHOTOGRAPHY is this year’s contest theme; photographers should submit images that depict ‘living’ for photography. The image may be of any *publicly acceptable subject matter and should illustrate how much emotion the art form invokes. Editing is permitted but the image should retain the ‘feel’ of a photograph. The brief is quite open and we will be accepting any image that directly relates to photography whether a beauty shot, landscape shot, fashion shot etc. as long as the image evokes a feeling of “passion for photography”.
Random images not meeting the brief will be judged accordingly. If you’re unsure of the brief then have a look at some of the example images loaded for ideas. Get creative and put your own spin on the concept.
